Well today I felt adventurous. Well I’m in to “trick” riding at the moment so let me take you back to yesterday. Yesterday Chinga and I played with one hand, then no hands and then my hands behind my head. This was done at walk, trot and canter. He was brilliant he listened to my legs the whole time. I tied his reins to the D ring on the saddle with a piece of bailing twine so they didn’t fly over his head. Then I stood up on my saddle and balanced there. This was done at a halt. He was so good, mind you with a 15.2 hand horse it was VERY high.
Then today we rode with no hands and did some jumping. He was such a good boy that I decided to play with bare back. So we walked at bare back and then I got the halter out and my lunge rope, I tied one end of the lunge rope to one side and clipped the other side on to the clippy thingo. Then I had that on him using the lunge rope as reins, I still had the bridle on him for back up. We didn’t need the bridle at all he stopped perfectly for me. We played with bare back with a halter *and bridle* at a walk and trot. He was absolutely perfect.
Pumpkin is going great I was jumping him about a meter, cantering free jumping today. Hopefully I will hop on him again on Sunday.

Well its been ages since I've updated. Well I've been riding Pumpkin for awhile and yesterday I had him cantering over cross rails. Chinga is going great jumping around a meter for the highest point of the cross rail. So it wouldn't be a meter.

Pumpkin isn't mine he is a friend's. He lives in the paddock next to my horse and we are hoping to have our horses together in a paddock soon once they become better friends.

Today Chinga and I cleared the 3'00 jump. He was brilliant! He was a bit nervous to start with but by the end he was perfect! We also worked on smaller jumps with two poles spread apart, by the end it was quite far away from one pole to the other and he was perfect. We also tryed cantering over smaller one bar jumps. Hahaha Chinga jumped a meter before the jump and landed way after it.

Well today was "entertaining." I decided Pumpkin was ready for his owner to have a ride on him. So she got on and I started walking and trotting her around on a lead rope. When she felt comfortable she went for a walk and trot by herself, then she went over some trotting poles. After that we raised the bar slightly. Soon she was jumping him at a cross rail with the highest point being around 2.'

Then she tried doing it towards the gate and the gate is Pumpkins problem, I've walked, trotted and done a small amount of cantering towards the gate on him. I've also done some jumping towards the gate on him. So they land the jump. Pumpkin starts cantering. His owner, pulls him up. But then part of the bridle breaks and the bit gets pulled threw his mouth and is now hanging around his neck...Oh no we are screwed. They stop at the fence and Pumpkins tooth was bleeding slightly so we unsaddle him, put his halter on and bring him out of the paddock to have a good look at it. No more blood. Then he starts eating.

A while later we bring Chinga and Pumpkin out to say hello. By the end of their graze they were grazing right next to each other happily. Tommorow is my lesson on Chinga! Yay! I can't wait, he had a huge brush today and will be getting another one tommorow.

Thanxs sooooo much for getting me on pumpkin. You have almost given my riding life back. Its a shame the bridle broke,, it might take a while to get that new peice... in the mean time lunging and poles might be his only means of work.

I'm pretty sure Chinga's sleeping at the moment.

Are they going to say hello over the fence 2morrow?

Goodie, he is sleeping! Yeah lunging would be a good idea for him. We could see if the peice that broke can be taken off Chinga's bridle and used on Pumpkins? NO! They can't say hello over the fence tommorow, Chinga already has that lovely sore we don't need another one! Maybe after the lesson?

After the lesson would be good. It would be good if Chinga wouldn't mind sharing parts of his bridle with pumpkin. I am telling you now though ,i'm not that keen on running after pumpkinto much.... my tailbone is still sore from the double up!!

Chingaz, you know absolutely nothing about training your own horse, let alone someone elses horse. You are rushing your horse and stunting both your horses growth and welfare by persisting with what you are doing (rushing your horse). You can't just jump over a height and then put it up! You've got to get the horse comfortable with the height and get some consistancy. What you are doing now disgusts me. For God's sake, you are 12 or 13. You are far too young and naive to believe that you can train a horse in the manner that you are doing. This is just showing your immaturity.

you are even sillier for letting her train your horse. She might be your friend but she knows nothing about training horses.
